In a recent interview, SOHN described himself as a “positive nihilist” which is simultaneously an oxymoron, and the perfect description of his music. Christopher Taylor began doling out one off tracks as SOHN in 2012, culminating in an EP called The Wheel. Now, he’s jammed his uplifting breakdowns and airy, tightly-packed electronic R&B into full-length album called Tremors. The Vienna-based producer and vocalist fits somewhere between James Blake and Autre Ne Veut, so expect pillowy synths and helium vocals strewn with lyrics that confront existential crises.
